My Current Arsenal Of Products For Accutane

Lips: Aquaphor. Just like so many others agree it's the best!! When I got my last tattoo it was recommended and I've since used it on my elbows, feet, and cuticles, never thought to put it on my lips but it feels awesome and seems to be doing its job for now anyway. **Just discovered Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lip Balm!

All Stories Should Start At The Beginning...

Let's see...I suppose the onset of my "adult acne" was around 10 years ago. Since then I have tried in vain to end, or at least manage the suffering from this awful condition. Between the MANY MANY OTC lotions and potions, laser resurfacing twice, and of course the topicals, cleansers, and oral antibiotics prescribed by multiple dermatologists my parents and I have spent around $25k.
